Deunna Fairchild died and six people were hurt in a drunk driver accident in Arlington, Texas. This fatal incident occurred on November 7, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
Valencia Freeman was driving inebriated at a high rate of speed on South Collins Street. There were six passengers in the car with Freeman, including four kids. Suddenly, Freeman had no control over the car and crashed into a telephone pole. The telephone fell on the top of the car.
All seven people in the car had to be taken to the hospital with ranging injuries. One of the kids, Deunna Fairchild, died as a result of her extreme injuries. Another one of the kids is reportedly in critical condition. Most of the other passengers do not have serious injuries. Our hearts and prayers go out to those involved and their family and friends.
There is simply no excuse for operating a vehicle while under the influence. Every time someone turns the key to start the engine it is their responsibility to ensure that they are not impaired in any way. Freeman has taken the life of a beautiful child and injured many passengers, which is beyond heinous. This type of irresponsibility is not acceptable.
Reports indicate that Freeman was arrested for intoxication manslaughter and multiple counts of intoxication assault resulting in serious bodily injury.
There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
